Gorakhpur is one of the major districts of  Uttar Pradesh. Located on coordinates 26.765844° N and 83.364944° E, the population of Gorakhpur district is nearly 44,40,895 and geographical area about 3483.8 km2. The major rivers flowing in Gorakhpur district are Rapti, Ami, Rohni and Ghaghra. Gorakhpur district is a flood prone area and about 26% of the population is affected by floods almost every year. This paper analyses the temperature, humidity and rainfall data of Gorakhpur area. It was found that the rate of rainfall is decreasing, temperature is increasing (both max. and min. temp.) and relative humidity is increasing (both maximum and minimum relative humidity). It has been observed that there is very less amount of rainfall during winter season in comparison to summer season. The average temp. is about 25.5°C and average rainfall is about 1205mm (17 years).
